I am interested in the different roles and responsibilities for children and young people's learning and wellbeing, how this is enacted through policies and what this means in terms of the opportunities afforded to young people. 

I have been involved in numerous projects in the field of education where research was undertaken in settings including schools, colleges and higher education. Example projects were funded by the Department for Education, The Edge Foundation, HEFCE, the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE), and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This has seen me carry out research with a wide range of individuals involved in education, including those from statutory agencies, community organisations, charities, employers and post-16 learning providers.

In higher education, I've worked on research that has explored teaching pedagogies, graduate futures and university support in terms of widening participation.

I've also conducted research with children, parents, teachers and senior leadership team members. A recent publication includes ‘Personal Guidance: What Works?’ for The Careers & Enterprise Company and an interim evaluation of the Gatsby Benchmark Evaluation.
